In 1980, twenty-year-old Chris Harvey paused from studying to talk to his roommate. Gunshots interrupted their conversation as a drunken young man randomly fired a high-powered hunting rifle from the hillside across the street. One bullet penetrated the side of Chris's house, struck him in the temple, and severed his optic nerves-instantly blinding him. Chris lost his sight, but he was determined not to lose God's vision for his life.
Until My Blindfold Comes Off is a story of faith and courage. Live the events of that fateful evening and learn how Chris chose a positive attitude amid adversity. Follow his path as God teaches him to forgive, and see how he refuses to let go of his dreams. Look back with him as he recognizes God's hand in every step of his life. Rejoice with him as he claims God's promise of eternal life-a life in heaven with restored sight, where he will look upon the face of Jesus.
